Lucky red laces.


I opened my mail yesterday and discovered the I was awarded a pair of “lucky” red shoe laces from the folks at Clif Bar.  Pretty cool stuff, thanks guys!

 

My persona running is going so-so.  I cant be overly positive but I have to be positive as I am doing better than I have in a long time.  I wont be going to Denver to run the Denver RNR as I had planned, but my hip is feeling much better than it was 4 months ago so I cant really complain, other than I will miss the race, the Broncos/Jets game and spending my anniversary in Denver with my wife.  There is always next year.  And if the Arizona state budget keeps going like it is, perhaps we will be living there and I can commute to the race next year!

I am still compiling more info on how the elite Japanese runners train, but I am also looking to find more info on how the regular types train there, as a 4 hour marathon is not a great accomplishment there as many in the States feel it is.

 

Let me see if I can find a funny picture to post below.

Pretty sad that is the best my new iMac has on it.  Time to get busy transferring files from my old Dell to this bad ass iMac.

Did you hear that one of the miners trapped in Chile was running up to 6 miles a day while trapped underground.  WTF?????

Here are some upcoming running races int he Phoenix Area.  I wanted to sign up for the Grand Canyon marathon but it was sold out .  I also found out that there is a 50K in Sedona next month but it is also sold out.  CRAP!!!

Well here ya go.

From get set Az.

Yeah, I am stil pissed about not knowing about the 50K in Sedona.  I think that I will start looking at longer races and hopefully will do a 50 miler in the next 6 months.  I have been looking at several 50 mile training plans and I think that I will combine parts of what I think will work for me from different plans and create my own plan.

 

Anyone know how I can work from home and still make about what I make now?  I really want to work from home.  If my home was in Sedona.

 

Anyway, I need ot end tis so in saying c-ya I will say watch this video of the last great Denver Broncos QB.  Jake Plummer.
